Oracle has announced its newly-formed partnership agreement with the National Education Training Group (NETG), a bond made in an effort to provide flexible, quality education solutions.
The ever-changing nature of the IT industry means that, often, traditional education methods just aren't sufficient to keep staff up-to-date with the latest trends. To this end, Oracle and NETG are working to provide multimedia solutions designed to complement classroom-style teaching.
Frank Cselko, director of education for Oracle Australasia, told ARN that the partnership with NETG would allow Oracle to "supply a broader range of education solutions.
"In the past we focused strictly on Oracle products. Now, we can take the customer through to training on desktop applications, and a number of associated products. What we're offering is a total education solution."
Today it supplies training solutions for an increasing number of desktop applications and softskills such as Windows NT, Novell, object-oriented technology, client/server and many others.
"Oracle is now a one-stop shop," added Cselko.
The company operates under a three-tier education strategy that incorporates the old classroom-style method of teaching - where customers can attend workshops at a number of Oracle teaching centres throughout Australia; onsite training - where Oracle visits a user's site and tailors a program to suit them; or computer-based training - available either on CD-ROM or via the Internet. If you elect for the latter, Oracle supplies you a PIN number to access sites.
Users can select any of the education options singularly or opt for cross-over education.
"The union will facilitate the development of multimedia-based training providing users of Oracle products education which is both time-efficient and flexible."
